Jamie Lidell, The Walkmen Free the Radio
Free Yr Radio is ready to wrap 2008. The campaign, which has already seen events hosted by Dave P, The Secret Machines, Dan Deacon, and Tokyo Police Club this year, will end its 2008 season with three shows hosting the likes of Jamie Lidell, The Walkmen, and King Kahn.
As has been the case since the indie radio awareness campaign launched at SXSW in 2006, various fundraising activities will be present at the events to raise awareness and dollars that will go towards helping independent radio. The shows below are free with an e-ticket, which can be purchased from the campaign's site. Guests admitted until the venues fill up.
